Sadly, Joseph Arthur Guy Bédard “Frenchie, ti-Guy, Guy “, lost his four-year battle with cancer on April 19, 2022. He was born April 11, 1941. Growing up in the small town of St. Charles, he decided to join the Canadian Armed Forces. He did two tours in Germany and two tours in Cyprus. He retired from the Forces after 20 odd years of service with the RCR. He became a commissioner for the rest of his career, notably working at the Sudbury Airport. For those that were lucky enough to know him, he will be remembered as being a joker, with a unique sense of humor. He loved to get people going and most often left the person second guessing about the outcome of the conversation. From an outside perspective he seemed quiet and stoic, but once you got to know him, he was a force to be reckoned with. Not only would he make you feel comfortable with his humor, he was also that person that would help out whenever he could. He led a simple life, in which he was devoted to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by his dear wife of 55 years, Mary-Rose (Larivière), his children Roxanne (Steve Pladzyk, Marissa, and Marek), Richard (Karen, Bryn, and Ronan), and Natalie (Miranda [Dale, Zander, Sebastian, Ivory], Myles, Kalli, and Luna-Belle). His presence will also be missed by his siblings and their families, his in-laws and their families, nieces, and nephews and his two faithful furry companions Dory and Cody. His shenanigans will be missed by his neighbours and friends. The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors in the ER department of Health Science North for their care and professionalism as well as the Paramedics and home care nurses that tended to him. Ti-Guy, may you rest in peace. As per Guy’s wishes, there will be no service.
Anty Mates, Richard, Roxanne and Natalie…and rest of thé family
How I wish to be close and share your pain…
Prayers and thoughts go out to each and one of you…
As per you Uncle Guy….merci pour les beaux souvenirs et bon voyage
Love Always…Serge and Denise xxx

Mrs. Bedard, Roxanne, Richard and Natalie, my sincere condolences on the passing of Mr. Bedard. I have many fond memories of spending lots time at the house when we would bring Abu to visit his sister Jasmine, and the times when Mr. Bedard would watch me when the gals would go play cards or bingo. Rest in Paradise.
